Abstract

We present a topology correction method for automatic reconstruction of brain cortical surfaces. We take the volume-based approach by first correcting the topology of the white matter volumes followed by extracting the cortical surfaces. A multiscale method is taken so that topology errors are gradually corrected with respect to the correction cost. The special surface-likeness property of white matter and gray matter is considered in evaluating the cost of topology correction.
